37 Must-See British TV Shows to Add to Your Watch List

The UK has produced so much quality drama, so many incredible documentaries, and so many classic comedies over the years that any “best of” list can only scrape the surface of what British television has to offer. But if you’ve stumbled across a few British shows on Netflix or Amazon recently, or noticed how many Brits are nominated for Golden Globes this year, and you’re looking for some new things to add to your list, allow me to help. As POPSUGAR’s resident British “telly” addict, I’ve binged my way through my fair share of BBC drama, ITV comedy, and cult Channel 4 shows. This list combines some of the best modern shows with a few of my personal favorite retro classics to bring you 37 must-see shows from the UK archives. Whether you’re looking for light entertainment, a dark drama, or an irreverent comedy, there will no doubt be something on this list to suit!
